Where can I find 130mm bcd track rings?Trevo
Jul 2, 2003 10:32 AM
I only find 144mm track specific rings. Iam looking for a larger sze ring for my 130mm DuraAce cranks. Anyone know where to find 130mm chainrings that accept a 1/8 chain?
How come I see chainrings that can accept both 3/32 and 1/8? Hows that work?

Thanks

Some BMX rings are drilled for 110 and 130.

Harris Cyclery (Sheldon Brown) usually keeps 130s in stock:

I was told that you shouldn't run 1/8" chains on 3/32" cogs, but you can on 3/32" chainrings. Then I was corrected by a trackie that does just that. Go figure.

My advice: stick with the road rings and the 1/8" chain.

If you're dead set on spending a lot of money that you don't really need to, try www.businesscycles.com for track stuff that you can't find anywhere else. If your LBS can order from EuroAsia, you can find a lot of track parts through them, but again, be prepared to pay.

1/8 = 4/32 so...ss-nyc

I have heard and it seems to make sense that since 1/8 = 4/32 it is wider than 3/32 so....

- You can run a 1/8 chain on 3/32 chainrings and cogs.
- You CANNOT run a 3/32 chain on 1/8 chainrings and cogs.
